    “If you care about freedom of speech, you care about institutions that make it possible. Giving personal control of university teaching to politicians and their cronies, as is now proposed in Florida, would be a huge blow to freedom of speech.”

    One of my favorite quotes from President Obama, ” If you think education is expensive, wait till you see how much ignorance costs”. I feel we are in the midst of growing ignorance with so many not aware or don’t care. There is going to be a huge price they will pay, and I don’t mean just money.

    Black publishers request Speaker McCarthy grant equal access to 41K hours of Jan. 6 Commission footage after Fox News receives documents

    This is a matter of equal access to governmental information for the Black Press of America and specifically referencing the fact that Speaker McCarthy set the precedent by providing the 41,000 hours of footage to Fox News. The NNPA awaits a timely response to this request for equal access.

    “The U.S. Constitution does not distinguish the freedoms of the press to just white press, mainstream press, or right-wing press. These freedoms are afforded to ALL media. The Black Press is a trusted voice in African American communities and should receive the same equity and access as all other press entities in the U.S.” says Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr., President and CEO of the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), known as the Black Press.

    The NNPA has made two requests, both of which have gone unanswered by Speaker McCarthy.


    • March 9, 2023 at 10:41 am

      “The NNPA calls upon Speaker McCarthy to uphold the principles of equal access to government information and provide the 41,000 hours of security tape footage to the NNPA immediately.”

    GOP bill in Florida would require state registration for bloggers

    Vladimir Putin signed a “bloggers law” in 2014, requiring online writers to register with the government. A similar GOP measure is now pending in Florida.

    At the governor’s urging, Florida’s Republican-dominated Legislature is pushing to weaken state laws that have long protected journalists against defamation suits and frivolous lawsuits.

    DeSantis Allies Plot the Hostile Takeover of a Liberal College

    by Michelle Goldberg

    New College of Florida has a reputation for being the most progressive public college in the state….(more).

    Naturally, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida wants to demolish it, at least as it currently exists. On Friday, he announced six new appointments to New College’s 13-member board of trustees, including Chris Rufo, who orchestrated the right’s attack on critical race theory, and Matthew Spalding, a professor and dean at Hillsdale College, a conservative Christian school in Michigan with close ties to Donald Trump. (A seventh member will soon be appointed by Florida’s Board of Governors, which is full of DeSantis allies.)

    The new majority’s plan, Rufo told me just after his appointment was announced, is to transform New College into a public version of Hillsdale. “We want to provide an alternative for conservative families in the state of Florida to say there is a public university that reflects your values,” he said.


  21. March 9, 2023 at 12:59 pm

    imho…thinking about tenure…
    DeSantis and those standing behind him may (will) try to get rid of tenure altogether.
    CAN we pls be pro-active about something, anything? You can see and feel what’s coming like neon lights in 3D since trump invaded in 2017.

    Florida Could Start Looking a Lot Like Hungary

    In 2017, the government of Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban passed a law intended to drive Central European University, a prestigious school founded by a Hungarian refugee, George Soros, out of the country. At the time, this was shocking; as many as 80,000 protesters rallied in Budapest and intellectuals worldwide rushed to declare their solidarity with the demonstrators.

    “The fate of the university was a test of whether liberalism had the tactical savvy and emotional fortitude to beat back its new ideological foe,”
    wrote Franklin Foer in The Atlantic.

    “Do you know long it’s taken me to get Tucker to hate Trump passionately?”

  29. March 9, 2023 at 1:20 pm

    Al Franken 20 years ago:
    “The more you watch Fox the stupider you get.”
    “At the time people wouldn’t call each other liars, and I had to prove that.”
    “Satire is protected speech even if the subject of the satire doesn’t get it.”

    • March 9, 2023 at 1:24 pm

      How propaganda mixes with videotaped deadly attack on democracy and how they’re using the J6 tapes…

      Franken to Melber: “It’s just complete bull all the time.”
      “They know they’re just on Fox. So McConnell is going to be also shown on your channel. But Joe Wilson doesn’t care about people watching him lie on your channel. What they care about is just keeping the story going on Fox.”
      “That’s for their audience. There’s this huge division in this country.”
      “It’s very Orwellian now. And once you say there are “alternative facts”.
      “There can’t be alternative facts. But now you are entitled to your own facts.”

    The Curious Rise of a Supreme Court Doctrine…
    A timely new study traces the rapid and curious rise of the major questions doctrine, spurred by conservative scholars and commentators and driven by hostility to administrative agencies.

    “The phrase was used just once by any federal judge before 2017, and in only five federal decisions — at any level of court — before 2020,” Allison Orr Larsen, a law professor at William & Mary, wrote in the new study, “Becoming a Doctrine.”

      But she added that there had been a lot of other activity aimed at elevating a theory into something concrete and unassailable: a doctrine.

      “The word ‘doctrine’ to describe the major questions concept was first used by law professors and then bandied about on blogs, quickly picked up by advocacy groups on Twitter and used as a rallying cry in opinion pieces and programming by those seeking to challenge the administrative state,” she wrote.

    About Florida New College under attack by DeSantis et al.
    “A nonprofit group focused on government accountability is alleging in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that New College of Florida and new trustee Christoper Rufo have withheld public records in violation of state law.”

    “We are concerned about the turmoil at New College following the appointment of several trustees, including statements about political motives to reshape the university,” said Michael Barfield, director of public access for FLCGA. “The Center made a public records request to find out what is going on behind the scenes. We have not received any records in response to our request.”

      imho, DeSantis aka Orbán taking out liberal institutions. How do we save this wonderful progressive Florida New College? If he gets away with it this will be another XXXtreme nationwide education decimation project.

    Some great news this morning.

    I’m happy to report that our economy added 311,000 jobs last month – that’s on top of the more than half a million the month before.

    Montana bill would strengthen law requiring Indigenous education
    The bill comes amid concerns that schools have not properly implemented the curriculum requirement, which is embedded in the state’s constitution

    HELENA, Mont. — A bill that would implement accountability measures into a unique Montana law that requires the state’s public schools to create and teach Indigenous history, is so far making its way through the Legislature with noticeable support.

    “The bill, as sponsored by state Rep. Jonathan Windy Boy, Democrat, proposes stronger accountability into Indian Education for All, a curricular requirement embedded into the state’s constitution that requires schools to incorporate curriculum on Native American history in Montana. So far, the bill has passed the House with a 73-24 vote and is expected to move onto the Senate floor.”
